:same: This is WAY worse than NA times. Still no-lifing it as much as I can though.

I'm so excited. I watched OG's True Sight, then OG watching OG's True Sight, then the interview/Q&A with OG after they watched OG's True sight. Last year was magic. This year can't be as good but I'm still all-in for bad-time-zone-DOTAS. :getin:

All great videos... and now there's this one that just came out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdgTa9ni4S8

I quite enjoyed it as well :O

Hmm, apparently so. I even watched that entire main event and I don't remember seeing him at all. :shrug:

I know coaches were less of a thing back then, but I've even been rewatching a lot of old main event VODs and was loving seeing Ceb as panel talent and Bulba really doesn't seem to come up as much as PPD in analysis.

Edit: Yeah seems like he was an entirely backstage thing back then? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPhIwx6E4Wo you don't even see him anywhere with them in these videos.

I think him losing the dispel on storm hammer from the talent tree and moving it onto the shard was also pretty big

Yeah everyone else got new options from the shard, Sven has to pay 1400 gold to be how he was before.

Edit: V true, I forgot about that. Also keep forgetting shards arenít available until the 20 minute mark.

I think its humid as gently caress and the angle/resolution of the cameras is catching the stage lights off of their sweat.

DOTA isnít an elite sport, no, but I think The International is an elite sporting EVENT, if only for the prize pool and the crowds it draws

I do think itís a little bit of an attitude issue, like Ebert refusing to concede that video games can be considered art. It just seems like the people who matter and make the decisions refuse to see ANY esport event as elite sport, but I think TI is the one event that may be big enough in esports to do so.

Oh well, their loss IMO

I remember listening to cap cast at the animajor and thinking "wow he seems way more chill and less like an rear end than he used to", lol I guess that was just presentation

He was in a good mood post major because someone gave him a huge effort post on Reddit stroking his ego. This week he is complaining about the community and not wanting to go on Reddit or Twitter, he canít make up his mind.

I only listen to it to hold me over until sundyren cast though

Liquid got outdrafted in Game 1. The main thing Storm does as a hero is zip and kill your supports before they contribute, and as soon as heís far enough behind that heís afraid to do that, heís useless. Lina/Nix/Brood is a tough matchup in midgame, and he just got rolled.

In Game 2, Tundra drafted Batrider mid, so now weíre on to Game 3.

Because DPC. So we get Alliance and VP who bombed out of the majors but won their seasons

Tom Clancy is Dead posted:

Tundra not being directly invited has nothing to do with the DPC points distribution, they couldn't make the top 4 in either DPC season to go to a major.

Well the spots are given based on those DPC rules. They donít just directly invite any team itís DPC and regional quals only, right?

Like I would be fine with Valve doing that and inviting a few teams, like say the defending champion, but itís all down to the seasons, and WEU is stacked where we arenít going to see Liquid, Nigma, and maybe OG. Thatís crazy, but itís how they decided to do it.

And I mentioned VP not to say they are WEU but rather to say they are similar to Alliance: a team that is going to TI for the massive points from winning their seasons but bombed out of the major hard. I know VP is CIS :)

gently caress yes game five. This is a big reason why OG is fun to watch, they donít tend to go out clean.

Iíd be really bummed if there is no patch before TI. The meta needs a shake up, even though we still are being surprised by these silly picks and drafts that somehow work because these guys exist on another level of play. It would not feel good to see the same heroes, mechanics and items doing the same things two months from now.

The best part of following this thread when I can't watch the games just yet are OG matches because every time there's always like 6 posters screaming about how dog poo poo and bad they're doing and how they've already lost I get excited to see some clownshoes poo poo when I get home and it turns out it's just some minor gently caress ups and throws and counter-throws.

You people get me excited for real stupidity and give me milquetoast bad plays.

Thatís the best part about OG, they make other people make hilarious mistakes they shouldnít make. They do it too, but they bring everyone down to that chaotic monkey business level. And they are more comfortable with it and have the stamina to go a full best of five while everyone else seems to get gassed by it

Edit: Secret stomped OG in a best-of-five earlier this year right? While they still had mid one I think?
